Elisabeth Leonskaja piano
A doyenne of the piano makes a regrettably rare visit to Paris for an evening of unalloyed Schubert.
Schubert Sonata No. 3 D. 459
Wanderer Fantasy op. 15 D. 760
Sonata No. 21 D. 960
Approximate running time
1st part: 50mn - Intermission: 20mn - 2nd part: 40mn
Elisabeth Leonskaja’s repertoire can be compared to that of Sviatoslav Richter who identified her extraordinary talent as a performer. This doyenne of the keyboard will combine the quasi-Lisztian virtuosity of the Wanderer Fantasy with metaphysical exploration in Sonatas D. 459 and D. 960 by Schubert, a composer who is her constant companion in her quest for the absolute.
